Calling all photographers! Art Jameel comes to UAE

Are you a passionate photographer?

The British Council is proud to be partnering with Art Jameel to bring their prestigious photography award to the Gulf for the first time. Previously, the award has only been open to Saudi nationals but for this 6th edition of the award photographers from UAE are also being invited to take part.

We’re encouraging all talented photographers to apply for a chance to win a cash prize, develop their skills and exhibit their exceptional photography.

The theme of the competition this year is ‘Transitions’, reflecting today’s changing society.

Am I eligible?

Entrants must be 18 years and above  and your photograph need to be taken using a camera (not a camera phone)

How do I take part?

If you want to take part, you should be able to produce a single photograph, or a series of photographs that capture transitions from social, conceptual, cultural, economic, personal or even technical perspectives.

When will I find out if I have won?

The winners will be shortlisted on November 15th, 2015 and the exhibition ceremony will take place on December 15th, 2015. Winners will receive cash prizes, the opportunity for residency and the chance to participate in Art Jameel’s activities in Saudi Arabia and abroad. If you win, your work will be promoted online and in print across the GCC and internationally.

Applications will close on November 1, 2015.
